Ms. Sutton from Summerville SC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learn at First Sight!

My students need help with identifying, recalling, and practicing Kindergarten leveled sight words. Also, my students need more interactive stations. I am requesting items that are colorful and that will help them engage in educational activities.

My Students

My students will be coming from all kinds of backgrounds as well as learning abilities.

Many of the students in this area of South Carolina come from families in the military, families in transition, and families from rural communities.

With diverse backgrounds such as these, it is imperative to provide the best of the best for these unique children.

My goal is to make the transition from their prior school AND home experiences into this traditional Kindergarten setting as smooth as possible. There will be challenges but with your support and these supplies, I know that this will be the greatest Kindergarten year of them all!

My Project

My students need more interaction with the basics including sight words, stations, and calendar skills.

Through the many materials I am requesting, my students will be able to practice learning through more engaging activities and attention-grabbing materials.

I have included a sight word game that students will be able to practice their sight words and then write them on the sentence strips. Also, color ink is not provided by the school; therefore, students are unable to benefit from color in their station activities. Finally, students will benefit from understanding place value and the order of days of the week, months of the year, and keeping track of the days as they pass.

Through your generosity, my students will be able to interact more with these daily activities and continue to succeed in Kindergarten!
